NEW CASTLE — Two candidates have withdrawn from the May 21 primary ballot in Lawrence County.

Nancy Bretz has withdrawn from the Wilmington Area School Board race and Earla Marshall from the Ellwood City Borough Council contest, according to the county elections office.

Wednesday was the deadline for candidates to withdraw.

The withdrawal of Bretz, an incumbent, leaves five candidates running on both Republican and Democratic ballots for four seats on the board.

Marshall’s withdrawal from the Democratic ballot leaves seven candidates seeking the party’s nomination. Voters will nominate four candidates from each party in the primary.
